Read the info about bears in the Top Questions in the upper right.

Don't walk around the campground or Curry Village, and you probably won't see any bears. I don't know of any precautions you would need to take. They aren't looking for people; they're looking for food that was left out.

As a camper who has had bears in my campground even, the bears in the sierra are not really dangerous., We clap our hands or flip fops or pots & pans & they run off. Sometimes we just watch them walk by. They really are not at all interested ijn you. When you walk around at night in Yosemite in early July you'll hardly be alone either.

"We clap our hands or flip fops or pots & pans & they run off."

Or sometimes they just look at you like "why are you being so loud?" and continue with what they were doing :)
